In regards to visiting Pushkin and St. Petersburg in general, I have a question (albeit probably a silly one). I have been a Romanov devotee for years and have only begun to learn the language.
How functional in Russian does one have to be to safely travel there or is English spoken anywhere? I am planning a trip to StPb next year and would like to know how proficient in the language i must be.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
